Berlin’s Turks stoked for Euros quarter-final ‘home game’

BERLIN: Members of Berlin’s large Turkish community have vowed to paint the city red when their team comes to the German capital to play the Netherlands at Euro 2024 on Saturday. “The atmosphere will be like a home game for us,” Muhammet said Ali Sevilmis, 36, who runs a phone repair shop in Berlin’s Kreuzberg district. There will be “mainly Turks” in the stadium, predicted Sevilmis, who himself paid 500 euros ($540) for a ticket after Turkiye’s victory over Austria to reach the quarter-finals.
